Daily Android App: X-Plore (File manager)


I was in a bad need of a file manager that can offer similar experience to what Total Commander offers on Windows PC’s, so I’ve started digging on the Android market for one.

I know you’ll all say whats wrong with Root Explorer, but I needed something for my tablet for fast and easy copy/paste/move from internal memory storage to the sdcard and backwards. Anyways after a few minutes of digging I came across X-Plore developed by Lonely Cat Games.

Guess what not only that it is a file manager and its free to download, but you can even zip/unzip archives very easily and extremely fast, has support for  LAN, FTP, Root and more. X-plore dual-panel is highly customizable and also has an option to see details on a folder like the size in the folder which Root Explorer can not show me.

X-plore is the perfect file manager for devices with a touchscreen bigger than 4-inch, really great on my 7-inch tablet. More details about this app from developer on the Android market.
